I'm new here also. Since '96 I've been on (2-60s)120mgs Oxicontin and (4-5s)
20mgs per day for chronic pain. To make a long story short, '92 assaulted, '93 rearended by semi. No restitution. Me-SSDI Wife-SSI Meds Ours= $11,000 yr. Update: Jan. Bankruptcy. My pain meds were $700/mo. April, made mind up I can't afford pain meds anymore. Today I down to 15mgs oxicodone when needed. Moral= if you have real pain, your body will need to meds, not your brain like and addict. They take it for the high. You for the pain, BIG difference.
Drug addict chose his addiction, therefore a stigma exists for him. You did not , Like the rest of us didn't choose this pain/ disease we have. No stigmas, neccecity!!!
2-3 more week I'll be free and have some $$
15mgs of morphine, no problem to stop.(edited for improper language) Please read our forum rules, before posting. This is a family friendly forum, and some of our members are minor's
